City of Scottsboro schools go virtual due to illness

Scottsboro, Ala. (WHNT) – Schools in the City of Scottsboro (SCS) will go virtual for the rest of the week due to the spread of the disease in the region.

According to a post on the school system’s social media, SCS will add an online learning day on Wednesday, November 9. The school system was already planning to hold an online learning day on Thursday and will be closed for Veterans Day on Friday.

The school system said during this time, “our schools/campuses will be cleaned and disinfected.”

Although SCS did not specify what the illness they were closing for was, the flu remains on the rise in Alabama. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) flu detection map, Alabama remains at very high risk for influenza activity.

The school system says all students will return to campus on Monday, November 14.
